This its only sequel was released in 1990 and 1993 as NC-17 and R rated versions. This trailer is for the 1990 NC-17 version.

A domestic comedy in which a violently feuding divorced couple (Midler & Farina) suddenly and unexpectedly reunite, and turn their daughter's wedding and honeymoon upside down. Haven't seen it. IMDB rating 6.1. MPAA PG-13 TRIVIA: This film was swiftly yanked from its UK release following the death of Princess Diana. This was due to Danny Nucci's role as an obtrusive member of the paparazzi. Six years after this film's release, Marshall and Nucci married in real life. Topics: movie trailers, comedies, domestic comedies, romantic comedies, Bette Midler, Dennis Farina, Paula...
